FDA’s Medical Device Recall System is Deeply Flawed, Experts Say — Attorney At Law

The U.S. Toy Industry Association, whose members include Mattel Inc. and Lego A/S, say its board unanimously approved a plan for a new testing system after the recall of tens of millions of Chinese-made toys last year.
The proposal includes new steps in the design, manufacturing and safety testing of toys, the New York-based trade group said.
